metalspice (690) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2015 Nesten svart med brunt skum. Svak lukt med en del nøtter. Samme i smaken sammen med tørket frukt. Intetsigende ettersmak. Merker lite til alkoholen. Hadde gledet meg til denne på julekvelden, lettere skuffet. Samme batch ett år etterpå (364 dager). Svisker, lett kaffe, nøtter og jordlige toner i duften. Samme i smaken med tørket frukt som mest dominerende. Sprudlende og lett bitter avslutning.

djoeye (3835) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2014
Very dark brown body with clear ruby tones, beige good head, poor lacing. Aroma; malts, dusts and a bowl of nuts. Taste; dark malts, dark prunes, mealy liquorice, dusty hops, dark fruit wine. Finishes a bit flourish, mostly dark malts, sweet and fruity. Feels full bodied, sweet, dry fields too. Overall a good and warming evening sipper, with xmas fruits and nuts in a bowl nearby. Cognac’s not necessary anymore... [33cl green btl, abv9%, BB FEB16, B@vinmonopolet Langnes Tromsø 6€ T@höme]

Backlog rating. 50cl bottle at CBC Clerkenwell, Gunnar tasting. Thanks Gunnar himself for this one. It pours a brown color with ruby edges and a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet with dried red beeries, booze, toasted bread with butter, toffee. Taste is quite sweet with notes of toasted malts, blackberry marmalade, wet soil, vanilla and caramel. Finishes relatively sweet and boozy. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Nice beer overall

2014 årgang smakt I bryggerstua til Berentsen. Beste avec årgangen så langt. Flott fylde og mild sødme. Alkoholprosenten skjules flott. Dette er et flott dessert øl.

Cimbasso (772) - - AUG 19, 2014
A very dark reddish brown with a big, beige head. Milk chocolate sweetness in the aroma, but flavours of date, caramel and tawny port in the taste, but without the sweetness of a port. Very little bitterness from the hops. Very smooth taste and big mouth feel. Long lingering finish of milky coffee flavours.The sample was from a 33cl bottle brewed in 2013.

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during the Gunnar Tasting. Thanks to Gunnar for this one! Pours ruby-brown with a creamy tan head. The nose has rich bread, old fruits and alcohol. Medium sweet flavor with bready malts, faint milk chocolate, booze, earth, leather. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Moderately warming to finish with dark brett, more aged fruits and light earthy bitterness. Good one.
